Fetch from Socks server.

Just create your SSH Tunnel with port forwarding (no need for Socks)
and point varnish to localhost:port as a source.

ssh -L 8080:www.example.com:80 user at sshhost.example.com

But you will pass all traffic through the encryption of the SSH
Tunnel, which will produce quite some CPU Load on both the Systems.
